I use primarily Nvidia GPU cards for rendering, some ML, Cuda projects etc – and occasionally run benchmarks on the cards l have on different workstations for comparison.
Using OctaneBench – click here to download – here are some results. I used OctaneBench 4.00c
GTX970 4GB Desktop PC 94.16
GTX1060 6GB – on Alienware 17R5 Laptop 91.31
GTX 1080 8GB – Desktop PC – 147.30
Seems a bit odd to me that a GTX1060 is beat by a GTX970, but that might be because of the mobile vs desktop version? , l am pretty sure l have ran other tests posted on this website showign a GTX1060 exceeding a GTX970

Compared with my custom main workstation PC, using a dual card 8Gb GTX1080 and 4Gb GTX970
With same workstation, just with the GTX1080 8Gb card
From above, it seems my main PC as l have researched is limited a bit when a 4Gb GTX970 is in it.
Also note the processor is much older, compared to that in my new laptop below.
Below is the Alienware 17 R5 Results
Discovered this free but very good Benchmark software – Catzilla – Click here for the download website.
Here are my various PC results.
A17 laptop – GTX860M [4 years old]
PC with 2xGTX560Ti [recent build]
PC with GTX1080 8G + GTX970 4G [ 5 year old PC , i7 2600K at 3.4Ghz 32Gb ram with new Nvidia cards]
I’ve used several benchmark software to compare computer hardware especially nvidia GPU cards used for cuda programming. One good free benchmark software is Maxon CineBench , another is Unigine Haven
Here are surprising results generated from the new Blender Benchmark under its Blender Open data website program.
Quick summary/my findings:
- less render time running Linux [LinumMint] than under Windows 10 [all things turned off], same hardware
- SSD’s help
Linux run: Workstation with GTX1080 8Gb, GTX970 4Gb, 32Gb RAM, Quad core Intel processor. No SSD
Same hardware as above but run under Windows 10
Ran on same hardware, only using the GTX1080 8Gb , under Linuxmint – impressive resuly showing in my view and from cuda/nvidia research l did that the 4Gb of the 2nd graphics card limits the performance.
Home PC #2 Results below, newer PC, no SSD, 2 x GTX560Ti
Below results from Alienware 17 [4 years old] with Samsung Evo 500Gb SSD, GTX860M
Happy New Year 2018!
Benchmark results from my primary laptop/workstation.
Have this video card on my main CAD workstation (Q8200 2.33Ghz Quad-core 8Gb RAM Vista 64bit).
Updated the video driver to a nvidia 182.08 windows Vista 64 release after some windows vista problems with the 182.20 release. Seems to be working great.
